The importance pending the selec
tion of a good man this Hill to take the
place of .luik'e Woodward u h"-"1 time
. ... 1
expires, should lie forcibly impressed,
upon thi! minds of every loan. The.
two candidates, lion II. V. Williams,'
for the Republicans, Hon. (leu. Sliars
wood, for the Democracy, arc repre
sentative nii'ii of their pi'iifcs.-.;,!)). j
lioth possess superior talents and quali
fictitious for the discharge of ail diuiesj
pertaining to the position. Jjoih are'
of unimpeachable private, character.
It gives us pleasure to say this of an:
opposing Laui In late lor it is, indeed, a
rare occurrence that proffers the op
portunity, li may then be asked,
what grounds have we for denounc
ing tho election of Sharswood ? We
answer, because his principles arc
in direct antagonism to the interests of
the country, because in his weakness, or
duplicity, during the struggle for the
nation's life, he jieml the cause of re
bellion ! He arrayed himself by his
judicial opinions upon that side, and,
to-day, in accepting the nomination by
those who in every conceivable way
but the practical one o' fighting, aided
and abetted treason, we understand
him as not having changed his creed.
Arc not these reasons enough why
Geo. Sharswood should never wear the
ermine of the Supreme Judgeship?
Proof for what we have stated may be
cited in the oft quoted case of IJorie vs.
Trott, in which the Judge gave it as
his Opinion that the issue of legal ten
der notes by tha Government was k-m-c-o-n-x-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n-a-l
! In his Opin
ion we find a clause that renders un
tenable thenssumed position of the Hon.
Judge. He says : "It follows that to
sustain tho constitutionality of an act
of Congress to determine that it is a
law an authority for it must be af
firmatively shown. That authority
must exist in the Constitution in ex
press words, or the act mud appear to
be necessary and jiroper for carrying
into execution some jioicer or jioiriw
veiled in Congresx, in the government of
(he United fiUile, or in some depart
ment or office thereof.
By tins rule wc are now to decide,
whether that clause of the act of Con
gress, approved Feb. 23, 18G2, en
titled 'An net to authorize the issue of
United States notes &c. is or is not
a law of tho land."
"By this rule" he aumiis the spirit
of the Constitution dead in the letter 1
Should you not declare a man crazed
who protested against the burning of

her beauty, with a dangerous lee shore
on her quarter and no coal in her hau

Sharswood objected to the issue of
paper money. The nation was driv

solution, tho treasury was empty and

not inherent in governments then arc

Again, the Judge to be elected fills
the olTiec for the term of fifteen years,
making it all the more important that
it should be a man who has not been
found wanting in the nation's need.
The necessity ia apparent. We know
not what is in store ior the future, we
have the pant for a warning. However
harsh it may sound, it is strictly re
quired that "the judiciary should be
placed in harmony with the political
opinions of a majority of the people."
We have had enough of the reult.s of
such decisions as Taney V in the Drcd
Scott case, and although, in the good
ness of God, ho has been "gathered to
his fathers" his infamy will shine a
lurid glare pointing out the shoals
upon which our bark nigh foundered.

AVhen two vehicles come together
on a road from opposite directions, one
must either "pull out" and let the

which may rcsut in great damage to

Grant and Johnson seem to have come

of the ("ise Grant is prepared to "move

We look upon his position as Secretary

expostulation with A. J. in behalf of

will not wait long until tiny have

time and again. Now, he is accepted
as authority by these journals for the
"astounding diselosure'Vf a conspiracy
against the President by Duller, Ash
ley, Holt it Co. Why they should
publish this canard authenticated by
his declaration is a mystery. They
surely cannot presume upon the credu
lity of their readers. Such wanton
absurdity does not speak well for their
sagacity as editors. The object is, no
doubt, to prevent any further move
ment toward the impeachment of the
President or perhaps, to bring odium
upon those they hate the Radicals.
The contemptible dodges to which
the dyig organization ironically called
Democratic, is driven, to keep life in
its miserable remnant, is beautifully
illustrated by this attempt of the party
leaders. Truth, is a guide which they
have long since abandoned. They
prefer to lot that safe leader remain
buried at the bottom of tho well,
where an ancient fable said she was

deceit and slander, arc more congenial
to their tastes, and in fact are the ouly

has abandoned all the good ol yects

The disposition of apathy that char
acterizes the prosecution of the cam
paign is criminal, to kiv the least.
There must be an awakening on the
part of Republicans ! It will not do
to risk too much upon our acknowl
edged prowess for there are ' many
schemed working and many subtle
covert ways they may be worked to
advantage against the party. The issue
is not merely an important one, but
the effect a Republican success will
have is of great consequence. The
fall election is the skirmish that pre
cedes the gcwral engagement of '69.
We want the outposts pressed back
upon the main body with such force
in tht skirmish that it will throw them
into confusion ami the general engage
ment will result in nothing more than
capturing the weary and dishcarted
and driving the stubborn o!l' the field.
Let there Ik; a simultaneous movement
along the line !
Heretofore we have not favored
j hearkening to this cry when it was
used by the South in the plural. As
it conies up to-day in behalf of their
avowed friend tit the White House we
sincerely hope that it will le heard.
The Springfield (Mass.) Hepublican
sets forth the reason for our desire:
Nobody has been able to account
satisfactorily for the strange course of
the President. We suspect he has
been secretly bought up by the Re
publican National Committee, to help
m the Fall elections. His "swinging
round the circle," last year, secured
splendid triumphs for the Republicans.
This year (hey were somewhat anxious
about the Fall elections until the Pres
ident came to their aid. His conflict
with Gen. Grant and the Department
Commanders, has now mado every
thing secure. There is fresh talk
about impeachment, but the truth is
we cannot spare the President from the
arena just yet; there would be a fear
fill stale of political indifference if he
did not "conic down" to disturb the
waters occasionally. Keep him in the
White I louse another year, and the
Republicans will be sure of tlio Presi
dency, whoever is their candidate.

CiiMMrnr.i: Rooms, IlAniasnciic,
August 'J7th, lsij". To the People of
Pen iisyra nia : J', low-Citlzens In a
recent address from this Committee
your attention was invited to sundry
issues and principles involved in the
pending canvass; and also to the po
litical opinions and judicial decisions
of George Sharswood. A short re
view of the principal occurrences, since
the last State campaign, is now con
sidered proper. The contest of 18GG
was fought, in the main, upon the
amendments proposed by Congress to
the Constitution of the United States.
These were national issues; and on the
one side were arrayed the Union Re
publican party and the "Roys in Rlue,"
and on the other President Johnson,
the Democratic party, aud all the reliels
and their symyaihizers from one end of
the Union to the other. On these
momentous issues Pennsylvania rallied
in her strength, and polled over one
hundred and forty thousand more votes
than at her preceding annual election.
Among the results were the triumphant
elections of Major General John W.
Geary for Governor, and the indorse
ment of Congress, by the return of a
delegation more unanimous for the
right than ever known before in the
history of the Commonwealth. Other
loyal States united with us, and the
insane and wicked "Policy of 1 resi
dent Johnson, and of his new friends
and allies, was overwhelmed by the
unprecedented and magnificent popu
lar majority of four hundred thousand
rotes! Every State which has been
faithful to the National Government
and the cause of the Union during the
war, approved the proposed amend
ments. Every rels-l State, except
Tennessee, rgected them ; and under
the rebel provisional governments
created by President Johnson, rebel
power resumed its authority, anfl be
came dominant in their executive,
legislative, anil judicial departments.
Vagrant and labor laws virtually re
enslaved the frecdmen. Loyal men
were outlawed ond trampled under
foot ; and the revived spirit of the re
bellion was everywhere triumphant.
Riots, fnurders, outrages, and assassi
nations were the order of the day, and
security for either the lives Or the
property of loyal men was nowhere
found. Treason had front seats, loy
olty hud been made odious, and trai
torous conspirators against the life of
tho nation were vindictive and . ram
pant. .Such was the condition of public
affairs in the South when Congress
convened in December, 18GG. This
nation had solemnly resolved, and vo
ted, that the Union should be restored
on the basis of loyalty and justice ; and
to this end was tho Fortieth Congress
elected. Hence were passed the Re
construction laws, in execution of the
repent popular verdict. The Presi
dent vetoed them, refusing to accept or
abide by the decision of the people, to
whom he had so otleu and so vaunt
ingly appealed. Congress re-enacted
them over .the 'vetoes, by more than the
required two-thirds; and thev are now
tho laws of the land. Under them,
including the amendments of last ses
sion, reconstruction is rapidly progress
ing; and would doubt less ere long be
suivcssfully neiiunpli.shcd, but for the
persistent obstructions by the President,
in (Ictinncc ol l.ongivss ami the jiopu
Iar will. Justice is being done; loyal
men, wlntiand bla'-lc, have been pro-1
tested from the malice of defeated
rebels; treason, in a measure at least,
has "been made odious," aud traitors
have been compelled "to take back
seats" as Andrew Johnson, in a lucid
interval, dtvlarcd they should. Even
the better portion of the rebels admit
the justice of these reconstruction laws,
and cheerfully acquiesce in their pro
visions. General James Lnngstrcct, a
distinguished rebel officer, in a recent
published letter from New Orleans, ex
presses himself as follows:
"I shall set ont by assuming a prop
osition that I hold to be sell-evident,
viz: The highest of human laws is
the law that is established by appeal
to arms. The great principles that
divided political parties prior to the
war were thoroughly discussed by our
wisest statesman. When argument
was exhausted resort was had to Coin
promise. When compromise was un
availing, discussion was renewed and
expedients were sought, but none could
be found to suit the emergency. Ap
peal was finally made to the sword, to
determine which of the claims was the
true construction of constitutional law.
Th! sword has decided in favor of the
North; and what 'they claimed as
principles cease to lie jn'ineiples, and
are become lair. The views that jrc
hold cease to be principles because
thev arc oppo-ed to law. It in, there
fore, our duty to ahandon ideas that are
obsolete, and conform to the reiparements
of line. The military hill and, amend
ments are peace offerings. We should
accept them as such, and place onrselres
upon them as the starling point from
irhich to meet future political Issues as
Jell'. Thompson, another rebel Gen-!
ernl, in a late letter to George D.
Prentice, lq., indorses the reeon
st ruction laws of Congress thus :
"The confederate government wiped
out Slate rights the first year of ils
existence, a bloody war wiped out
slavery, and wiped out the eoiiiederaey,
so they fire obsolete ideas; and the
plain question now pre.-eiiled is, 'Will
you accept citizenship under our terms,
as contained in this law?' and 1 em
phatically inisieer, yes .'"
It is greatly to be regretted that
terms which are so acceptable to the
lighting rebels of the South, should
be so distasteful, and cause so much
clamor from their non-combatant sym
pathizers in the North.
The enemies of the United Stales
having been finally defeated in battle,
united their cllbris to elect sympa
thizers from the North, and to pro
cure the ml mission of enough rebels
from tin; South to enable them, through
Congress, to attain what they had lost
in the field. This programme was
frustrated by the loyal people at the
ballot box in the election of the For
tieth Congress. Defeated in ojkmi war,
and again in Congress, these ballled
conspirators, as a hist ivsort, are en
deavoring to save "the lost cause"
through the courts. They deny that
anything has been settled by the war;
and boldly proclaim that "all those
grave pending questions'' must, be de
cided, "juit in fuel, as they icoud hare
been decided had they arisen eight years
ago, or had no war taken place." (7ViVd
delphia Age, July Slli.) They not
only deny the constitutional power of
Congress to impost) terms ujmhi the
rebel States or people, but deny that
Congress itself is a lawful body, be
cause the rebel States are unrepresent
ed. Hence, the recent application to
the Supreme Court of the United
States for injunctions, to nullify the
Reconstruction laws of Congress in
Mississippi, Georgia, and other rebel
states. In the same interest, and of
the same character, is the nomination
of George Sharswood, a well known
and lile long State rights man, for the
r?upreme Imirt ot 1 'cniisvlvunia. He
judicially denies the jiower of Congress
to issue paper money, or to give it
value by making it a legal tender.
(Jtorie vs. Trott, IjCqal Intelliaencer,
of March 18, 19G-I, jnge ).) judges
Thompson and Woodward, of the
same court, not only announce these
same doctrines in the (use of Merrine
vs. Hailorcl al. (Lgal InleUlgencfA
of June 10 ami ! 30, 1SG3, wus 188
and 20.3), but in the easwot Juieedler
et al. vs. JAine el al. (9. Wright's
lleporls, page 238), denied the power
of Congress, in time of war to draft
men into the military service. The
principles declared in these decisions
were ils hostile to tho national exis
tence and perpetuity as any assault
ever made by General Jam and his
armed legions nt Gettysburg, or else
where. It requires no argument to
demonstrate that if theso decisions on
currency and the draft had prevailed,
and become the established law of the
land, Hiicfx'S.s in the war would have
been more impossible than if the rebel
army at Richmond had been reinforc
ed with half a million of men ! Is it
safe, therefore, to place another man,
entertaining these opinions, on the
Supreme lionch of the State ?
bay, September 4, 18CT.
Forewarned should lie forearmed.
These Suj)rrior Churtnare now tho "last
ditch" of tho rebellionjtiud the country
calls upon the "Ixiys in blue," and ev
ery loyal voter, to rally once more to
the rescue ! . '
Complete your county and township
organizations without "delay. With
this thoroughly done, victory is sure;
without it, there is danger. Revive
at once everywhere tho liiiyal Leagues
and associations, which proved of such
vast service during the war. Let
every patriotic man feel that he has
something to do in the good work, and
proceed forthwith to do it with all his
might. Exclude all side issues, local
quarrels, and personal aspirations, and
labor only for the "public good, lie
not deceived by the stale clamor about
negro equality and negro sull'rage.
These worn out hobbies were suppos
ed to have been ridden to death at our
last two annual elections, when, as
now, they were declared by onrene-
, mies to be the great issues of the con-
test. 1 hey arc now raised up and
i brought upon the track airain. mount-
cd by the same riders, nnd destined to
the same ignoble end. Do not discour
aged by the vain boasting of our ad
versaries. They have been ingloi
iously defeated in every contest for
years, and cannot now prevail against
us. The loyal and patriotic; people of
t no State have heretofore nobly sus
tained us, and the cause of the country,
under the heavy pressure and discour
agement of drafts, taxation, bereave
ment and carnage; and when nothing
but an abiding faith in an overruling
Providence, and in the justice of our
cause, enabled us to see the end. Surely
there can be no faltering now when
the goal is almost reached! and when
one more united rally liir our princi
ples and our flag will enable us to se
cure the ripe fruits of the kite dreadful
civil war, and to garner them safely
for ourselves and our children.
Wo stand over the ruins of a gigan
tic rebellion, the most formidable ene
my ever encountered by republican
institutions. We stand close by the
graves of three hundred thousand of
our noblest men, who counted their
lives well spent when otfered freely
for Liberty and Union. In the pres
ence of their speechless but eloquent
dust; in the presence of tho doubting
and snei ring enemies of free Govern
ment, tit home and abroad; in full
view of the oppressed millions, who
from beneath crushing despotisms
watched our flag, with te;u's,and hopes,
and prayers, throughout the four long
veal's of bloody conflict; before a God
of justice, and in the name of all that
makes faithfulness to Ilini, and honor
among men, we stand pledged to se
cure and maintain forever the prin
ciples for which our brothers died.

is the promulgation of Gen. Grunt's
order to commander of Military Dis

appointments to civil olliee of persons
who have been removed by themselves
or their predecessors in command.
Inasmuch as this is not strictly a dis
approval of any act done by a Military
Commander, it win freely declared in
administration circles to-day that the
order was not in strict accordance with
the much diseased supplemental recon
struction law. However this may be,
the order has added n valuable fiict to
the difference growing between the
President and Grant, and as such is
universally commenced. This order
was telegraphed day before yesterday
by command of Gci)"ral Grant to
Generals Pope, Sheridan, Sickles, Onl
and Scholield. It is claimed hereby
certain parties that one reason fur
issuing it was the belief of Lotiisiuna

weighs fifteen tons.
